do you prefer

shelter to

hunker,

 

hunker to

shelter,

 

or perhaps

fuck-this-noise-I’m-

French-kissing-strangers-and-licking-doorknobs

is more your cup o’ tea?

 

Ah well, enjoy, my friend.

Far-right US pastor becomes first person banned from Ireland under exclusion powers | TheHill

What this dangerously delusional “pastor” says about Jews and LGBTQ folks is beyond the pale. That Ireland had the good sense to bar his entry into their country is one blow against the normalization of this lunatic’s beliefs. Anderson is a dangerous and mentally unbalanced man, and his having a stage to spout his nonsense is akin to a patron yelling FIRE in a crowded theater. And remember, Anderson’s “church” pays NO taxes, rather we the taxpayers subsidize his bullshit.

I love short stories. All the pluses of a full-length novel artistically reduced in size to a few pages. Managing to get the arc of a story, with the plot thoroughly developed, in ten or twenty pages is an artistic feat.  I recently read “Silver Water”, a truly thought-provoking and beautifully rendered tale of mental illness and the toll it takes on a family. I’m now on the hunt for a collection of her short stories. She’s definitely worth checking out.
